The Capital: Machias. (A request for content)
« on: February 27, 2013, 03:25:15 AM »
Most of you are probably aware (and sick of reading the summaries) of the ongoing campaign that I've been running. However, it's now time for me to begin creating the Capital City where my players will be spending a great deal of time and effort- so it's something I really don't want to flub.

And while I intend to scrounge around the Citadel for inspiration, I know that finding every gem that could offer me something is impossible, so I'm hoping that any of you willing could guide me to submissions you might like used in the campaign. Locations, NPCs, factions, I'm going to need a lot of content, so don't be shy, step right up!

Oh, I'm sure we can suggest some fine things for you. :D

I'll do some poking around later, see what sorts of treats I can dig up. Is there anything specific - in terms of setting, style, organizations, etc. - that you're looking for?

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

Setting is late medieval (no gunpowder, magic exists, no demi-human races), style has been very cloak and dagger with politics thrown in.
